    so what’s the general feeling?
    you all confident this week?
    I think they play angry and lay it on NYRB.
    …they sure as shit better not play scared- or that’s a wrap for my support of the man in skinny pants.
    No excuses. Not one. Will. Be. Tolerated.
    have to win this match.

      A loss cancels out a great season. A win validates the credit given so far. I can live with losing on the road to NYC or ATL, and losing at home to Toronto, DC, or NE would be frustrating. But a loss in this game would be absolutely awful. I wouldn’t call for Curtin’s head, but I wouldn’t stand in the way of those who would. As far as confidence, this team bounces back after every rough patch. They had 2 huge wins against Minnesota and Pink Cows after the May struggles. Then they handled DC and Atlanta after midsummer struggles. Cold Streak 3.0 better have the same happy ending.

      • In Tanner We Trust says:

        Also worth keeping in mind, besides the NYC game, when was the last time they lost a big game at home? Tied the league’s best team, beat ATL, beat NYPC. All struggles have been on the road this year.

  2. In a word, yes. I expect them to play a determined, focused and fearless full 90+ and walk out as the victors.
